Benchmark Report for Buffalo

So, here's the final benchmark report for the Buffalo game.  A couple quick notes...the benchmarks themselves are now updated for the 2011 season.  Note that we use conference games only.  I will do some more on the comparisons for the whole conference from 10 to 11, but in the meantime, chew on this...on 2010, MAC QB's threw 141 interceptions and in 2011 they threw 72...HALF as many.  That's pretty remarkable (and no, there was not a significant decrease in attempts.  From BG's perspective, it means that our struggles with interceptions are getting relatively worse, especially as we are less likely to get them back on defense.

As you can see for the Buffalo game, it was pretty spotty.  BG had a below average offensive game, just not as far below average as Buffalo did.  BG's big plays in the passing game saved the effort.  Also, (more on this another day as well), BG continued its red zone improvement, scoring 4 times in 4 attempts in Buffalo.
